Facebook has begun rolling out its Instant Games on Messenger to more of the 1.2bn people that use the platform every month - after initially rolling out the gaming service to 30 countries in November past year.

The first new game to take advantage of these features will be Zynga's Words With Friends, allowing Facebook's massive following to play the extremely popular, albeit eight years old, Scrabble-styled game without leaving the Messenger app.

Facebook also announced two new features at the F8 Conference held some time back.

With rich gameplay features, there will be leaderboards and tournaments which will provide a more engaging and customizable gaming experience.

This is about to change today as Facebook has announced that Instant Games is now rolling out globally in its Messenger platform.
